[Nettime-bold] In Memoriam

The fall issue of Artery: The AIDS-Arts Forum,
( is devoted to the memorial and titled IN
MEMORIAM. For this surprisingly irreverent issue, Artery presents a
smorgasbord of materials on the theme of the memorial impulse, ranging from
opinion and commentary, interviews and artworks in a variety of media
(including Arteryıs first audio-work by the late Robert Farber), to
investigations of AIDS memorials and memorial services.

The last is a sampling of personal anecdotes about funerals and memorial
services spanning the gamut from the absurd to the sublime by writers
including Dorothy Alison, Christopher Bram,  and comic Bob Smith. In
addition, four Symposium participants examine the history of memorials and
Arteryıs News & Notes section includes not just announcements and analysis
but  film reviews. Arteryıs Centerpieces  feature an incisive and surprising
look at what happens to the prices of an artistıs work after he or she dies
by Judd Tully, a moving memoir by Alex Chee, and an angry "postcard from
grief" by Craig Lucas, as well as reports from Provincetown by Eileen Myles,
and the International AIDS Conference in Durban from Carole Leach-Lemens.
The subject of Arteryıs Artist-in-the-Archives interview is Rebecca
Guberman, a young artist and film-maker.

In the digital era, an article can be more than an article. Our features on
AIDS memorials (Stitches and Stones: AIDS Memorials), memorial services
(Memorial Services: The Unbearable Meaning of Being), AIDS Music, and the
new Bibliography section in the Talking Back section are also interactive
projects and the kernels of data bases.

Arteryıs next issue, devoted to activism, will be online by December 1.
